Emma commented “Originally from East Yorkshire, I moved to Merseyside in 1996 and loved the area so much I decided to stay. Having witnessed amazing regeneration and growth during my time in the region, I really wanted to work with organisations who were passionate about making a difference to the lives of others.
“My main objective is to ensure that communities across Merseyside understand what we do and are aware of the support available, as well as to highlight the amazing work that is being delivered across the region.”
The Community Foundation for Merseyside’s purpose is to drive as much investment as possible in to the community and voluntary sectors in this region, to enrich the lives of its people and build stronger communities.
Karen Morris, Development Director and Deputy CEO, said, “We are delighted to welcome Emma on board as part of a growing team, and believe this demonstrates our commitment to further increasing the level of investment into the region, and to ensuring we see an even greater impact through the delivery of incredible projects, which make such a difference to the lives of people in Merseyside.”
Since it was established in 1999, the Community Foundation for Merseyside has distributed £44m, making them one of the largest Community Foundations in the country, and the largest grant maker in Merseyside.
